Top Anime Series Of All-Time
1. Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion
This is my favorite anime. As number one, I especially like dubbing over sub. Because the voice in dub is really good and there are no changes in the plot or anything. The most powerful characters , the sensations and the most adorable main character. Some may feel that it is for children with all robots and fighting stuff. But this anime has many mental games and plot twists. In general, you’ll be a fan of lelouch as soon as you see it. Everyone greet Leouch Vi Britannia!
2. One Punch Man
Last fight and humor. I just haven’t seen any anime like this. Like the main character is a bit out of the zone and the plot is biased to keep it under the shadows. Since most people do not know how powerful Saitama is , several things happen on that premise. Although he is the most powerful hero and wants to fight against stronger villains. Really a binge worthy of anime.
3. Hunter x Hunter (2011)
OMG ! This anime has it all. Great fight scenes, character growth, OP punches and for once intelligent enemies. It has different arcs so you can experience many things about it. As if there were an arc where they enter a game, involving several cards with extra powers. One of the best is the Spider Arc, which is a lot of great fights and action. You love this anime for emotion, unpredictability and adorable characters. The mystery is maintained at all times in several things.
4. Detective Conan
This is one of my most initial anime , yes , I saw it even before Death Note. It has many episodes and is still ongoing. This involves a handsome young detective who became a child again and now lives with his pretty girlfriend and his detective father. He solves the cases and credits his good for nothing, Dad. Some arch that implies an important plot will undoubtedly give you goosebumps as a black organization. Each episode is fun to watch and this anime also has many movies.
5. Re: Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
Wow , wow, wowww . The MC fight you see in this anime is unprecedented. He keeps losing, losing and losing. Cry and come back, then lose again. This anime took the world by surprise and will also take you. Without giving any spoiler, just go see it. Worth every second of your time. Especially if you like the fight and the return of MC.
6. Sword Art Online II
Have you ever wanted to be in a virtual game ? Besides being the most powerful male player too? This anime is the continuation of SAO 1, the last one was a sword fight, but in this one you can enjoy a weapons action. In addition to having fun with the twists of the nervous plot. Must look for mmorpgs fans and virtual games.
7. Boku no Hero Academia
In 2018, hero anime really became popular. One of the best is this. It shows the journey of a child who had no power, but receives a mentor and, due to his willpower, makes things happen. In short, it is quite inspiring, it implies the school environment and many super powers.
8. Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei
Want more OP main character ? That helps many girls but is always straight and a total gentleman ? You settings school ?
The characters do not get more OP than this. If you want to have a lot of feelings, just look at this in one afternoon. The character has few magical abilities but has a level of god in combat and science. He knows everything, fights for the army while going to school with his pretty sister.
9. Akame ga Kill!
Too emotional, because the characters continue to die until there is none left. But amazing music , you’ll still hear music again after the anime ends. The fight scenes are good.
10. Haikyuu !!
Again an inspiring one. The one on the right is that the photo has a small height, but still compensates for it with its speed and crazy jumps. Both overcome their problems and form a super team that wins.
11. Shokugeki no Souma
Kitchen and torn clothes. It’s about eating food out of the world and then tearing off your clothes according to the level of flavor. The characters are very hardworking and work continuously to improve their skills. He has clashes, pretty girls and lots of good food.
12. Shingeki no Kyojin
Imagine humans fighting super acrobatic skills and compressed air equipment giants. It involves a lot of blood, incredible scenes, a twisted plot and much more. You will see this anime 100% again and add it to your favorites. A masterpiece indeed.
13. Tokyo Ghoul
This anime has more a love / hate relationship with me. I saw the first season, it was great. I tried to see more but I couldn’t, the plot can be confusing and few characters were lost in the new season. Many people say that Manga is a work of art, while anime things are too rushed.
14. The Seven Deadly Sins
Let me tell you first “The 7 deadly sins” and “The seven deadly sins” are totally different animes. Yes, 7 or Seven can make a big difference. Here we are talking about ” The seven deadly sins.” This is full of action and has some weird romance too. The MC is overloaded, which only makes this anime more adorable.
15. Kuroko no Basket Popular anime
This is quite similar to “Haikyuu “, if you are a sports anime fan, you can’t miss it. This anime is going to be a roller coaster of happiness and sadness, all this will leave you satisfied. But you will come back to look at him again.

Everything about this anime has a unique atmosphere that you can feel from the first episode. There is never a dull moment in this show since everything happens for a reason. Many people can relate to the situations in the show, since it affects a wide range of education / background of people: abused, rich, poor, lonely, popular, satisfied but lacking, etc.
20 Without game there is no life
No Game No Life is such a fun and extremely well thought out show, the concept is so basic and straightforward that you don’t think it can be represented so well. If your looking for something amazing that you just took out of this world in a fun, fun, amazing trip then your going to love this show.

What makes Log Horizon stand out from other anime with similar themes (i.e., SAO and Accel World) is that it is much more mature, it focuses on history, looks at events from a strategic point of view, shows us what it happens behind the curtains, that is, the political side of the whole thing.

“Mirai Nikki”, also known as “Future Diary”, is a 2010 Japanese anime short film and this was the basis of a television series that followed shortly after.

Light decides to launch themselves a secret crusade to rid the streets with full of criminals. Watch it to know more about this anime.
25. Ao no Exorcist
For all demon fans, exorcism and action, this should be on your mandatory watch list. This series begins with quite interesting with decent fights, demons, magic and a basic plot … but towards the midpoint it slows down with limited fights and many internal fights between the main characters with an ending to be desired.

If you are looking for an amazing anime, this is your call. You enter from the first episode of this masterpiece. A perfect combination of comedy, romance, suspense and much more. Also remember to watch the special episode.
With the main character following a less than perfect moral compass, the anime brings rawness and practicality to the cast’s actions as they solve the challenges they face. The animation of this series is very good and impeccable. The artwork is very colorful and each of the character designs is very well. The concept of creating a non-human for the main character is also a cool scene from time to time.
34. Grisaia no Kajitsu
As it shows, this one is quite dark. While the overall tone is quite light, many darker elements run below the surface and the story often stops in those directions. A really good watch if yours is anguish, violence and some ecchi. A important and main part of the show is comes from the colourful cast of its characters.
There is a main guy (Yuuji) who is not the typical protagonist of the harem. He is very independent and is able to remain calm in almost any situation.
In fact, it treats almost all situations intuitively and has good judgment and control. In short, Yuuji is the type of person who thinks before acting.
35. Berserk (2016)
Nice crazy series with incredible action. This program continues the story of Berserk and is definitely for people who have seen the original 1997 animated series. It is dark, bleak and surprisingly fun for a dystopian tale.

About anime: falls into the category of comedy and life.

The concept behind this series is interesting and entertaining, and to some extent it reaches its potential. The concepts with which the characters fight are interesting and attractive, and the plot progression is well developed. Virtually everything about production, apart from dialogue, is excellent.
Rainbow is one of the best children’s shows of all time, always had something new every week and helped children learn about life and have fun at the same time.

Based on the visual novel of the same name, ‘Clannad’ tells the story of Tomoya Okazaki, a former basketball player who was forced to leave his school team and all basketball, and who is now living aimlessly. Clannad was an anime that didn’t know what he wanted to be. He tried to be a drama, a romance, a part of life and a comedy, all at the same time, and he ended up being speechless.
This Anime is highly recommended because, most Anime simply doesn’t give you the feeling of investment in these characters. The characters are drawn consistently and the backgrounds are lush with details. The few action sequences of the show are animated smoothly. Dark artistic images, such as fixing the show on the dolls, adapt well to the mysterious tone.
42. One outs
It is not a simple entertainment job, it is an entertaining anime that orders you to think. Each and every character has their own unique personality, of course, Tokuchi is the smartest man both on and off the baseball field. This show never gets boring. You know Tokuchi is always going to win, but it doesn’t matter, because seeing him in action is too incredible.
This is one of the best anime that exists. This anime explains a lot about being a mangakka, a seiyuu and also guides you through the whole process.

Although ecchi is the main focus in this anime, the story itself is well made; more than you could expect to be. The show is completely exaggerated as expected; full of young women with little clothes, tons of f bombs, an exorbitant amount of blood, dismemberment. All the characters are very well developed and the story is very well written and if you want to see more, the music sounds in the right mood. To know more, just look at it J

The story is that many people, including the protagonist, are on a desert island where they are forced to play an exact real-life version of a popular online game. It was interesting enough to hook you and anticipate you for each next episode. You should look to know more about Btooom!
Black Butler and Code Geass are a couple more Indian anime characters worth noting. Yet one thing you can find even after naming so many Indian characters:
Very few anime shows showcase anything about India or Indian culture. While India and Japan share the same continent. This is due to contemporary cultural interaction between these two nations which is weak.
There’s a good chance when you see an anime that it has American or British characters or even European characters. Western culture’s presence in Japan, after all, is important. But India could have a big influence on anime in the future with the rise, progress, and technology lately. And also adding fantastic films, storylines and anime show to the animation industry.
Who is your favorite Indian Anime character?
